UNIGE – Jinx!

UNIGE – Jinx!

Jinx! is a project co-financed by the Rectorate of the University of Geneva and the Swiss Academies of Sciences, as part of the U Change program to support student initiatives for sustainable development.

The Jinx! team conceived and produced 19 videos of 5 to 10 minutes each, which cover the entire project management process. Theoretical content, tools, but also many examples, testimonies and advice for your project.

The realization of the videos was entrusted to Kaosmovies and the graphic design to alveo.design

These capsules serve several purposes:

– First of all, to answer the questions of young people who would like to start a project thanks to the transmission of key project management tools, by indicating very clearly where to start, how to evolve and transform the emerging ideas and energies, which tools and processes can accompany and structure the project throughout its duration, with whom to work and how.

– To provide theoretical content, but also to encourage practical application, by being very clear and offering a step-by-step process on how to use the tools or concepts presented.

– To show many concrete examples, in order to reduce the gap that often exists between tutorials on the internet and reality. The chosen examples also allow, thanks to a strong territorial anchoring and an assumed frankness, to “deconstruct” a little the ideal of perfection, by revealing in a simple but honest way, with humor, the sometimes chaotic and sinuous reality of the project management.

– Finally, to bring through these examples a light on the amplitude of the fields of the sustainable development and the diversity of the projects and their extent, while presenting an existing network of actors and actresses who carry strong projects for the sustainability and who can be resource or source of inspiration for actions in becoming.
